T Shirt Reclamation with Madam Chino

Friday, April 22 I 12:30-4:30PM

(Arrive Union Concourse by 12:30PM. Transportation will leave at 12:30 and return by 4:30)

While the UWM Studio Arts and Craft Centre is closed, we are visiting some wonderful community partners to learn new ways to make things.

For Earth Week, we’ll be visiting the amazing space of Madam Chino! Madam Chino is alumna Vanessa Andrew who has built a remarkable fashion business since graduating from UWM. Basing much of her own designs on reclamation of other materials, Vanessa is the perfect artist to lead students in a class on how to be more mindful consumers of fashion and how to use reclaimed materials to make new items.

Only 6 spots in this class! Email Kyla Yeadon at klyeadon@uwm.edu to secure your spot!
